Hartmann is the world’s leading manufacturer of moulded fibre egg packaging and machinery for moulded pulp production. While every producer’s egg has its own unique quality, we believe that packaging makes all the difference – and that it should be smart. That’s why from the size of egg pockets to the design of labels, we think everything through to the finest detail.

So we think ‘performance’ for smooth production flow and optimal stackability. We think ‘marketing’ for eye-catching design and attention grabbing in-store tactics. And we think ‘sustainability’ for manufacturing processes that consume as little energy and water as possible.
